  • About 35 percent of Netflix sign-ups come from tablets and phones, Recode reported.
  • About 60 percent of members use the mobile app once a month to watch a TV show or movie, according to Quartz.

Why it matters: Netflix is expanding into more international markets by using the mobile app. Viewers in international markets tend to use their mobile devices for Netflix more than their TVs.

  • “The growth of mobile Netflix users, especially in countries where mobile usage outpaces time spent watching traditional TV or time on a computer, is constant,” The Verge reports.
